The BORLEY RECTORY
THE LONGEST LIST OF THE LONGEST
STUFF AT THE LONGEST DOMAIN NAME AT LONG LAST
The story of The Borley Rectory.
The Borely Rectory in London had
the title of "The most haunted house in England", however this mysterious,
eerie, and scary rectory burned to the ground in 1939 along with all the
mysteries it held.
In the beginning, the rectory was the monastery for
Benedictine monks. The Waldergraves purchased the monastery and lived there for
nearly centuries. By the end of the 1800’s a new monastery was built on the
site. However, shortly after the monastery was completed strange and unusual
occurrences began to happen. This was no longer the serene and quiet place it
once had been.
As one legend goes, a nun and a monk planning to
elope: while were fleeing the monastery by horse and carriage when they were
caught and sentenced to death. It has been told that to this day, the monk is
seen wandering the grounds close to the tree where he was hung. The nun it is
believed was sealed inside one of the walls of the Borley’s Rectory while she
was still alive for the punishment of her sins.
Many visitors have seen the ghostly horse and
carriage as if still attempting to flee that awful night so many years gone by.
Reverend Lionel Foyster purchased the property and
tried to rid the Rectory of its ghosts in the late 1920’s or early 1930’s. The
attempts did not help. His wife was thrown from her bed, personal items and
other objects in the home were broken and smashed, and mysterious writings would
appear on the walls.
After the fire in 1939, human remains were
discovered in the walls.
To this day, the property is still haunted though no one is around to witness
the cries for help. Will anyone ever know if the skeleton remains were those of
the nun from the legend? Will anyone ever discover who wrote the writings on the
wall? Is anyone brave enough to stay the night on the grounds?
